> It doesn't make sense to blacklist whole distributions in tests.

Adding freedesktop_os_release() and using it are two different topics. I understand the the SC decision is on adding the function.

Using it to skip tests should be decided on a case by case basic. In general, I really dislike to skip tests on a specific Linux distribution.

In bpo-41818, the os-release file was used as a temporary fix just to unblock buildbots, but it was quickly removed. It was not used to skip a test on Gentoo, but to run the test on Gentoo ;-) Also, it was quickly removed, and it seems like even the skip on BSD was removed. Great! It was there for a very long time.
